Annual Meeting & Quality Congress
The 2013 Annual Meeting and Quality Congress were a great success!
Vermont Oxford Network’s vision was to convene the worldwide community of neonatal practice to improve the quality, safety and value of care
for newborns and their families. On October 4-6, 2013, over 1000 neonatal caregivers joined us at the Annual Meeting & Quality Congress.
2013 attendees represented 46 states and 18 countries. There was an outstanding presence of neonatologists, fellows, advanced practice nurses, bedside nurses,
state QI leaders, senior leaders, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, social workers and parents! They shared a record breaking 200+ posters and
videos highlighting their improvement work.
Information about access to the audio and video recordings of the conference will be announced shortly. The recordings are designed to help spread
the seeds of improvement and change throughout the year. It is not too early to mark your calendar for October 31-November 2, 2014 – a meeting you
will not want to forget!
